See Paris and Die

Hanna Saarikoski

My first visit in France. I spent four days in Paris keeping my eyes shut the whole time during this performance. On my eyelids I had a second pair of eyes painted with masquerade paints. In the spring 2012, the footage and sound recordings from the trip were edited into the video See Paris and Die.
